Very informative post and an excellent read. While I do not play a healer I do play a Pally tank so i really enjoyed your overall view of the dungeons and encounters. Thanks,LittleHonors

I play a resto shaman right now with a decent amount of sunwell experience and I wonder how well I'd be able to heal a 5-man as elemental spec with the spell power changes as I don't plan to level to 80 as resto. I know you would be missing some core healer functionality and utility, but nonetheless, I'd actually be curious how that would work out for any hybrid(Boomkin, Protadin, S.Priest, etc.) since I wasn't graced with a beta invite to try it myself.

Healing as elemental would be a little scary, but as long as you are over-geared, you can probably pull it off.I've healed UK on my Resto Shammy. Riptide needs a buff! But I do like it, I pretty much just cycled Riptide > CH > CH (repeat). But it's nice to have the fast Wave spells when needed.Even as is, Riptide does make a noticable difference to Chain Heal... plus the instant heal/HoT was just enough to top off the warlock in my group when he lifetapped, without getting in the way of healing the melee.The warrior tank had no trouble holding 3-4 mobs... no vent and we weren't even marking!

I haven't gotten to heal UK since they switched from Spirit Link to Riptide yet. Glad to hear RT helps cause the last boss in there (Ingvar) was ridiculous to try and heal until the dk in our group put up an anti magic shield for the mage and myself in phase 2. Although I think it would be much easier for a class that had more choices for instant heals and hots as they are less likely to be hit by the silence.
